Jahx Rife Really? Do you have to make my job more difficult? It’s difficult enough to teach these kids the actual facts, much less having to sift through the sort-of-facts.
Arinda den Rowan-Rife It’s not that bad, Jahx. Although, they do get pretty creative sometimes.
Jahx Rife Creative? Sometimes I despair for the future of magickers-kind! For goodness sake – these boys seem bent on killing themselves before they even learn to use it!
Nathan den Rowan I think you’re exaggerating just a bit there, Headmaster.
Jahx Rife You think so? Why don’t you sit in on a class one of these days and find out how grim my job really is?
Catherine den Rowan That’s a delightful idea!
Nathan den Rowan No, I think you’ll find it’s not!
Catherine den Rowan Oh, but it is! We could have a special class here!
Arinda den Rowan-Rife Oh that’s a nice idea, Catherine!
Jahx Rife I’m not so sure about that…
Catherine den Rowan We could have luncheon and do demonstrations. In fact, the whole school could come!
Arinda den Rowan-Rife It could be an annual event!
Catherine den Rowan Yes! Like a miniature King’s Festival.
Nathan den Rowan Absolutely NOT!!! I’m not even discussing it!
Jahx Rife It is a bit much, don’t you think ladies?
Nathan den Rowan I’ll sit in on your class, Jahx, but I draw I the line at a welcoming a noisy, unruly hoard with a thousand sticky hands through my door!
Jahx Rife Alright. I… um… will next week be convenient?
Nathan den Rowan Fine.
Jahx Rife Thanks…
Catherine den Rowan Your welcome!!!
Nathan den Rowan Wait! What?
Cullen Dahrvi She played you again.
Nathan den Rowan Shut up, Cullen! Who asked you?
Cullen Dahrvi Like a fiddle…
Nathan den Rowan I said shut up!
